I am 33 years old and was diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease a year and a half ago. I have been taking 150m/c of synthroid daily with great success. However, about 3 weeks ago, I returned to work after a 3 month leave of absence from giving birth to my third child. I had a very mild cold during that first week and thought I was having hot flashes. I would wake in the middle of the night in a pool of sweat and get really hot then cold during the day. I finally took my temperature and started paying closer attention to the spells of hot/cold. Turns out, I was running a low-grade fever - daily. This continued for 3 weeks. I finally went to the doctor and he has diagnosed me with mono after doing the mono test and a full panel blood work. I have been feeling tired, but then again, I just returned to work, have a teen-age son in football, a 20month old and a 4 month old. I figured I had good reasons to be tired :-) I had a severe case of mono in highschool and thought that it wouldn't flare up again. I am getting mis-information on the internet - some say you can get it again, some say you can't. Other than the fever and the fatigue at the end of the day, I have no other symptoms.
My question is - is it possible that the symptoms and tiredness are not going to get any worse? Because right now, I can function - I'm tired, yes - but functioning. When I had mono in high school, I couldn't function for at least a week. I'm worried that the bulk of the illness hasn't started yet.
I'm also beginning to wonder if there is a link between the two diseases (mono and Hashimoto's)
Any insight would be appreciated.
